13  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / NEW ZEALAND / Red and white dots. on: October 19, 2005 10:30:52 PM
Seeing all these has got my brain going overtime...

I realllyyyy want to make one of these dresses for summer, and I want red and white dots. I wouldn't mind the dots being blue, green, pink or anything else, but red and white is DEFINITELY my first choice. I am yet to see fabric like this at any fabric stores, and I was wondering if anyone else had. Specifically, stores in Christchurch. I'll probably wing it in the end, but does anyone know of a pattern like any of them?


14  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Red shoe'd costume...? on: October 11, 2005 08:02:53 PM
I have lovely friends. Not only do they invite me to halloween parties but they make me shoes!

My fellow-ballerina friend Hana and I have this thing with red pointe shoes. We have alllways wanted a pair, and Hana finally cracked when she grew out of her old pair. She painted them red, and put red ribbons on them for me. All of this was unbeknown to me, while I slaved away sewing red sequins on to a pair of old shoes for my Dorothy costume (for my friend's birthday party). So, Hana presents them to me and I have to tell her I've already made a pair. BUT- I have now been invited to a halloween party, and I will stop at nothing to wear those pointe shoes.

In conclusion- I need ideas for costumes that involve red shoes, be they pointe or otherwise. Ideas so far discussed are...
-Madeline (when she wants red pointe shoes)
-The Wicked Witch of the West (before Dorothy steals them)
-Erm... a red ballerina?
-Dorothy, but not again!

Help me crafsters!

15  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Dorothy-santa-elf shoes. Happy fun time! on: September 17, 2005 09:48:06 PM
K, so, I went to Kmart (I guess the Kiwi/Aussie version of Walmart) and got me some granny shoes. They were hideous and grotesque, but only $7.43. I had to do something with them, and came up with a plan. Muahahahahaaaa. So, anyway, I cut them up, painted them, added some elastic, and now I lurves them.

In their original fogey state (note the socks- I really love dots). Aren't they icky?

Them now- the coolest shoes on earth! The photo kindly exaggerates the poor paint job and splodgeyness, which is always nice. They are kinda like vans crossed with mary-janes crossed with ballet flats I guess. They are cherry red with leafy green dots, elastic and little bittys on the sides (which you can't really see).

Peeking out from the bottom of my jeans. Yep, I'm pigeon toed.

Please comment, I would love to know what y'all think.

16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Charm-y necklace and bracelet. on: July 06, 2005 10:00:15 PM
These things are really popular in the shops here, so I had a go at making them. The beads and baubles were from my catchall box, the bracelet chain was found on the ground and the necklace one was from another necklace. The wire (used for jump rings. Is that what they're called?) was some odd wirey stuff covered in plastic tubing, which I ripped off.


On the bracelet is... A green blobby bead, blue bead, yellow bead, green shank button and yellow heart off another necklace. The bracelet was made for a friend who loves green. Shh, don't tell her.
On the necklace is... button anchored with pearl, Barbie shoe which I burnt a hole in, and pink bead (same as yellow one above).
Excuse the crappy photo and carpet in the backround, please do comment.
17  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Restoring Great-G'Ma's quilt... on: July 04, 2005 12:44:53 PM
I recently discovered/remembered my Great Grandma's quilty thing. It is all made from the same fabric (but panelled), and some of it has disintegrated with age.
It is very beautiful, and it is a shame for it so go to waste, so what can I do about getting it restored? Are there people that do that for a living? Should I use a new fabric? Should I patch it? Should I leave it as it is? I'm very scared of ruining it.
Help me, oh wise craftsters.
18  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / For regular mall-goers... on: July 03, 2005 01:57:28 AM
Dressing room/shop floors.
I had to buy jeans today, so I tried on a bunch of pairs in 4 or so different shops. In each of those changing rooms (on the floor), I found...
-A large pearl
-A zip from a zipper
-Several sequins
-Some snaps
-3 or 4 diamants
A couple of other miscellaneous things. I have added them all to my catchall bag (which just keeps on growing and growing).
Another good place for free things is the ground. I am a complete magpie, and I have found so, so, so many gorgeous things on the ground including countless chains, a leather wallet, a silver earring and barbell, sequins and beads, buttons, and hundreds of charms.
I'm taking cheap to a new level.
19  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / B.O. Stains... uck. on: July 02, 2005 07:14:40 PM
Well, this is quite weird, but I hope someone can help. I would hate to see a pretty shirt go to waste.

A friend of mine recently gave me a pink zip up jersey in really good condition. I doodled rainbows and flowers, embroidered birds, sewed on sequins, and generally make it more interesting.

 I have just discovered one problem. The underarms REEK of BO. It is unbearable. Does anyone have any ideas of how I could get this off without ruining the colour and embroidery etc. of the jersey? I live in NZ, so brand names are pretty useless.

Thanks in advance.
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Freeform Knitting on: June 22, 2005 01:14:11 AM
I am quite a knitting/crochet beginner, but I am intrigued by freeform knitting.
The links on google are relatively bad, apart from this one... http://www.knotjustknitting.com/ .
I would love love love to try this. Does anyone have any website/book reccomendations or tips for me?
Also, what sort of things can be made with freeform? Of course- bags, rugs, shawls etc., but any other good ideas? Bear in mind I am not particularly experienced.
Thanks y'all.
